The Metro DC Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD) invites the submission of proposals to provide professional development workshops as described below. The chapter provides its members and community with a forum for professional development opportunities and resources to improve the workplace learning and performance industry. The chapter community is comprised of commercial sector, government agency, independent consultants, students, and others in the metropolitan Washington, DC area.
The Metro DC Chapter of ATD uses several delivery methods for providing professional development experiences. The focus of this form is to identify facilitators for workshops. Workshops are typically 7 hours per day and are expected to be highly engaging and interactive with frequent opportunities to apply the skills being learned. Feedback, knowledge checks or other confirmations of understanding are expected. Professional meeting or classroom space is provided. Workshops are not opportunities to sell specific products or services and we do not allow "selling from the podium."
In general, we are seeking content and topics that align with selected elements of the ATD Competency Model. These areas of expertise and foundational competencies include:
1. Performance Management
2. Instructional Design
3. Training Delivery
4. Learning Technologies
5. Evaluating Learning Impact
6. Managing Learning Programs
7. Integrated Talent Management
9. Knowledge Management
10. Change Management
The Metro DC Chapter of ATD will arrange for an appropriate facility for the workshop and also will manage advertising and registration for the workshop. Over 4,000 people receive communication and advertisements about our events and of course our events are listed here on our website.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal to facilitate a workshop for us, please click here for our proposal submission form. Your submission will be reviewed and you will be contacted by the Director of Professional Development or other chapter representative within 7 days to arrange a time to discuss it. A decision will be made after that conversation. If you have questions, you may contact the Director of Professional Development. Thank you.
